WikiLeaks Should Be A 'Terror Organisation'

WikiLeaks Should Be A 'Terror Organisation'

An American politician has called for WikiLeaks to be designated a terrorist organisation following the release of the latest batch of leaked documents.

New York Republican Peter King said the organisation was a "clear and present danger" to the US.

"WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States," he said.

"I strongly urge you (Foreign Secretary Hillary Clinton) to work within the Administration to use every offensive capability of the US government to prevent further damaging releases by WikiLeaks."

The Foreign Office said the actions of WikiLeaks risked British lives and security.

"We condemn any unauthorised release of this classified information, just as we condemn leaks of classified material in the UK," a spokesman said.

"They can damage national security, are not in the national interest and, as the US have said, may put lives at risk."

The White House was also critical of the leak of US cables.

"These cables could compromise private discussions with foreign governments and opposition leaders, and when the substance of private conversations is printed on the front pages of newspapers across the world, it can deeply impact not only US foreign policy interests, but those of our allies and friends around the world," a spokesman said.

"Such disclosures put at risk our diplomats, intelligence professionals, and people around the world."

Roger Cressey, a former US cyber and counter-terrorism official, said the leaks would have a "devastating" effect on diplomatic relations and on the fight against al Qaeda.

"The essence of our foreign policy is our ability to talk straight and honest with our foreign counterparts and to keep those conversations out of the public domain," he said.

"This massive leak puts that most basic of diplomatic requirements at risk in the future."

He added: "Think of relations with Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Afghanistan, governments who we need to work with us in defeating al Qaeda.

"This kind of leak will seriously hinder our ability to persuade these governments to support our counterterrorism priorities in the future."

However, Professor Michael Cox, associate fellow of the think-tank Chatham House, said the political fallout had been exaggerated.

"As to whether it's going to cause the kind of seismic collapse of international relations that governments have been talking about, I somehow doubt," he said.

"The really secret information, I would suggest, is still pretty safe and probably won't end up on WikiLeaks."


Wild Thing's comment.........

"WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States," he said.

Absolutely. These people should be arrested, tried and hanged. If that’s not possible, liquidated through a hit squad.

Pfc Brad Manning that they tell us is the one leaking all of this information from day one should be executed asap to stop anyone else that thinks this is acceptable. Treason. Death penalty. Might actually cause some to think hard before doing the same.

Any American assisting in leaking classified information which costs lives is committing treason and is worthy of a date with the hangman.

Any foreigner assisting is engaging in espionage or is an enemy combatant and should be put down for a dirt nap in the most efficient manner possible.

Please someone, please tell me WHY in the HELL hasn't the freakin OBAMA has not come out condemning these actions? I have not heard or seen this POS come on TV and condemn the this little shithead Pfc Brad Manning!! WHY hasn't he ordered a hit or PUT A FREAKIN BOUNTY ON THIS BASTARDS HEAD?? I'm lost at words that our govt would let this A$$hole put AMERICANS lives at risk...WHERE the heck are the bounty hunters!!!

If Wikileaks had threatened to release sensitive documents on the Russians or ChiComs, they would have taken him out a long time ago.

Whoever is releasing these documents needs to be tried for treason and, if possible, executed.

The U.S. just looks impotent in this matter. Our leadership has done little but use harsh language on the WikiLeaks owner. Perhaps there is some covert activity going on, but it's taking far too long to plug the leak. Surely the CIA or some other agency has the ability to get to this guy? (And I mean silence this guy!) How can it not be a crime to release stolen classified papers? Where are our allies? Interpol? A strong POTUS would have stopped this farce long ago. Any U.S. citizen -- military or civilian -- releasing classified intel or papers to any foreign source is guilty of treason and needs to be executed.
